No Harm Done

I'm a bit surprised to read that the harbor dredging project caused few, if any, problems. So says the Times- Standard, anyway. I would of expected at least a little bit of change to the North Jetty from the dredgings being dumped there but apparently the jetty is pretty much back to normal already.

The article says the dredging also removed "three tons of debris, mostly metal...". I wonder if they found anything interesting, like some old guns or even treasure?

Nah. I have to remind myself this isn't the first time the bay has been dredged. Any treasures that might have been on the floor of the bay were probably dumped offshore long ago during earlier dredging operations.

This was only removed only after the dumping on the beach had started and many complaints were made to the Costal Commission. The Commission had to demand the the Harbor District clean it up. It is really cynical for the Harbor District to now take credit for that. Typical spin.

Maybe the treasures that are missing are there, but only in the eyes of the beholder. Don't they say something like, "One's trash, is anothers riches."?

I think it would be a great idea to reroute the Mad River into the Mad River Slough so it would flow into the bay and put an end to the need to dredge. Of course it would ruin the oyster beds, but Humboldt Bay would once again the a deep water port.
